Join us for a lunch briefing that will provide insight into the dynamic world of kids’ health. Child health experts will share how coverage for children works, including covered pediatric benefits, out-of-pocket costs for families, and key acronyms that are used within the field.

According to new research, children have health insurance coverage in higher numbers than ever before. Panelists will identify the policy levers working to keep kids insured, discuss ways to maintain and improve children’s coverage, and help attendees understand the array of coverage options for kids along with the populations they serve, with an eye toward the future. After presentations, there will be time to answer questions.
